Description

This continuing education workshop focuses on the role of mental imagery training in promoting health, well-being, and rehabilitation. It is designed for all Allied, Public, and Mental Health Professionals. The workshop will introduce the scientific and clinical background of a specific form of mental imagery known as motor imagery (MI). Participants will learn the rationale for integrating MI into functional rehabilitation for the health and well-being of various populations (e.g., aging adults, neuro-degenerative and orthopedic conditions, etc.). Through lecture, discussion and practical movement sessions, participants will gain a basic knowledge of the scope of MI as a proactive adjunct to rehabilitation and health.
